Yes, we have completed our first half year of school, but there are still parts of the school under construction. It is great to see the progress as the structure grows, and you can imagine the potential for change in the lives of so many Curahausi students. Here is a quick update from the hospital website.
A call for order and cleanliness
Due to a public holiday on Saturday, the workers get to start their weekend on Friday afternoon this week-as is often the case in Germany or the US. For them it is a great pleasure and motivation, because usually “the hammer falls” at lunchtime on Saturday.
I have never seen such devotion by the construction workers on any of the sites I’ve previously worked. After a short pause for prayer, the long days begins with hard work. We are extremely grateful for God’s protection in these often dangerous activities.
The work now is focused on the courtyard of the kindergarten. The paths are now concreted and the building shines with fresh white and red paint. Even the base of the roof (roof box) is now closed in and completed. The painters are now working to finish the gym. The tilers have started on the ground floor and you can slowly see how nice it will look in a few weeks. On the play porch on the extension of the kindergarten, the screed is installed and the first handrail has also been installed.
The window manufacturer is working hard to make each window. He is here almost everyday to take the exact measurements of each individual window and door. The fencing is coming along slowly. The subcontractors often take quite a lot of time and often aren’t seen for a few days.
Each construction week at Colegio Diospi Suyana is a “German Week” because we continue to value quality, order, and cleanliness in our work.
